  • Live this lake! Very beautiful location. The road is alright driving there. Visitors can rent boats and the best place for hikers.  more »
  • My September trip and weather fresh and a little grey is probably not helped demonstrate me the beauties of the place. But not only I saw anything red or reddish, but above all, I saw the barracks at memories, the difficulty of parking not paying, the tourist traps. I did have the time to take a walk and this is probably the place turns. Note that I'm past 27 September, normal working day, and that there were people. I dare not think of it have to be in the summer...

  • Red Lake has nothing. But this is due to a natural accident training. Falling rocks of large dike was made and appeared the Lake. The trees rotted inside and are trunks sticking out. You can make trips in small boats. The area is ideal for a day

  • Beautiful place to visit. Did not rent a boat on the lake as the area is too small, but the walk around the lake was amazing and relaxing. Just follow the red crosses on the path AND know when to turn back as that's the way back as well. But do the whole trip until you get on the other side of the boat pier.
  • Quite busy at weekends. The main deck area can be overcrowded, but walk 1 minute left or right and all that changes. I like the short walking trail around the lake. A more demanding 2h (up+down) hike is nearby, towards Suhardul Mic peak, from where you get beautiful views over the lake.
  • In general nice place. Beautiful lanscape. Some activities can be done on the lake. Restorants, hotels and motels are present. But...there is consistent littering around and, the place is not well maintained. The main road that passes near the lake is not very good, often holes can be encountered. As overall I recommend the place.
  • The Red Lake (Lacul Rosu) is the largest natural mountain lake in Romania. I recommend you to go there and enjoy the beauty! You won't regret it!
  • It’s the perfect place to visit if you have a day off, or if you pass through the Bicaz Gorge. It is a relaxing experience, you have many things to do (rent a boat, take a walk) and you find good food to (traditional donuts called “langos” -with cheese, sour cream and garlic).
